The food was quite good. The service also nice, with the waitress quite accomodating. For us is was a lazy afternoon lunching and drinking. We had a lovely time all round

An ex-sailor rules this restaurant and serves a wonderful griller (and so many other recipes) fish. It's a must if you spend a night in Manarola. Excellent all the year.

This little gem sits right on the water and provides the most beautiful photo op for sunsets over the water. I was a bit skeptical at first. My thoughts of "How could a restaurant with SUCH an amazing view be affordable and offer good food?" were completely unfounded. We ordered the seafood risotto, and it was very al dente. I... More

Stunning view (the restaurant is in front of the sea), staff very kind. The food is fresh and good, but not for Michelin standards.

The service is slow,the sea view is great but the food is average. The fruitti di mare risotto is a major letdown - tasteless. The ink squid pasta tastes better. There is a cover charge of 2.50euro per person and taxes. Go somewhere better.

I had a dinner at this restaurant. The price is expensive for what you get. The overall experience was just "ok". The food was not the best I tried in other places in Italy (cheaper ones) and they charge a high price for their wine which tastes like a very sweet juice. On the other hand, the place is beautiful... More

My husband and I made a reservation before watching the sunset, and when we returned to be seated, the wait staff looked at us and then played a verbal game in Italian of who would LOSE and have to seat us. The rest of the night was all down hill from there. Being from Los Angeles, we are used to... More

The restaurant is located next to the harbour & has amazing views out to sea. Food was OK, service was fine when we visited. The location is the best thing about it though.

Currently on our Honeymoon in Cinque Terre, and we were referred to this restaurant for dinner. The view was by far the best part of the experiece, but the service was sub-standard at best, and the food was merely okay. We would not recommend this place.
